The Menlo Park Fire Protection District up-dated, up-graded and up-staffed its new “Quintuple” combination Fire Engine/Aerial, strategically located at is Fire Station 77 at 1467 Chilco Street in the Belle Haven area of Menlo Park located on the edge of the M2 Commercial Zone and directly next door to Facebooks new building 21, which is under construction.
During the day it looks like a pretty normal piece of fire equipment but the attached video clip shows that at night time it isnothing short of Awesome! With the latest in LED lighting technology the equipment compartments for the tools have a radiant white glow so you can easily find what you’re looking for and the aerial ladder uses colored LED ribbon lighting with it’s almost neon glow to allow firefighters to know where they are along its 107 foot length. The bottom section uses green lighting, the middle uses an amber/orange and the top section is a brilliant bright red, so even in dark, smoky conditions firefighters will be able to see the ladder rungs and safely climb up or help victims down the ladder and know where they are.Home News
